Deb grew up enjoying Colorado’s outdoors. Her interpretation career included working at nature centers and visitor centers and owning an interpretation consulting company. Deb began working as NAI’s events manager in 2004 coordinating the NAI National Conference and the International Conference on Interpretation. Her hobby, as a fiber artist, is felt-making. She has won awards, taught classes, organized a multi-day felting event, and sold her fiber art at fiber festivals and in Colorado galleries.
